Solid Hypoechoic Thyroid Nodules
Us says I have a 8 mm solid hypoechoic thyroid nodule with scattered, small cervical nonspecific lymph nodes. What chance is it malignant & it spread?
Depends: It all depends on the size and if it is new. There is a need to do needle aspiration if not sure ...Read more
Hyperplastic nodule: This sounds like a hyper plastic nodule. These are usually benign. In the absence of prior studies, this usually is followed up to show it's stable nature. If it changes or grows it would need a biopsy. Nonetheless would suggest an in depth discussion with your doctor ...Read more
3cm hypoechoic solid vascular thyroid nodule with a cluster of hurthle cells, fna benign, follow up ultrasound now shows microcalcifications. Cancer?
Not necessarily...: The fact that FNA was reported as benign, the nodule is unlikely to be malignant. Small droplets of benign colloid often mimic "microcalcificatins" of papillary tumor, hence caution is advised. I would suggest repeating the FNA, and consider also collecting samples for gene profiling studies, such as, those manufactured by Veracyte and Asuragen (Note:I have no financial/other interest.) ...Read more

1 CM hypoechoic solid and vascular thyroid nodule found and confirmed on us. Biopsy scheduled for january. How concerned should I be?
Up to you.: Sounds like it could be a cancer. But there is little benefit to worrying about things that might happen as there is also a chance that they might not happen. The biopsy will give you an answer. There is no reason to do a biopsy more quickly than what is scheduled. Until then live your life as you would normally. ...Read more

I have a heterogeneous hypoechoic thyroid nodule with solid components, internal vascularity and calcifications. Is there a chance this is cancer?
Yeah some: Wife had biopsy for this this week. Chance is low but that warrants a biopsy. ...Read more
3 thyroid nodules, hypoechoic solid nodule with few tiny calcified 1st FNA is benign follicular lesion and 2nd is benign follicular nodule, possible?
Thyroid follicles: Most likely, the ultrasound is picking up benign follicular cysts, or areas of "colloid" (where thyroid hormone is made) arranged in a circular pattern or nodule. From the description (& the 2 FNA biopsies) it's unlikely to be cancer. In certain parts of the world (40% of it), iodine deficiency is common & thyroid nodules are prominent. Http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/thyroid-nodules ...Read more
1st FNA is benign follicular lesion, u/s ;hypoechoic thyroid nodule with few small calcifications, 2nd FNA ; hard consistency solid nodule, %ofcancer?
Talk to YOUR MD: You clearly have a thyroid problem, and this needs to be discussed in context of the bigger clinical picture. If you have had FNA done, you have a doc following you. See them and ask what this means in your case and what should be done next. Lab results never occur in isolation. They occur in people, and the whole person has to be considered when making a diagnosis and treatment plan. Best wishes! ...Read more
Fewer echoes on US: Hypoechoic describes the appearance of a nodule on ultrasound (us). It refers to a nodule that reflects back fewer sound waves compared to the normal thyroid tissue around it. While most thyroid cancers are hypoechoic, most hypoechoic nodules are not cancers. But a hypoechoic nodule may have a slightly higher risk of being a cancer than other nodules. ...Read more
Yes, it can shrink. Most solid nodules are adenomas and are benign. If it shrinks that is a good sign...It is. Likely benign.
It is the ones that get larger or are large when they are first found that need closer assessment. In this case a biopsy may be needed to assess more closely.
Btw thyroid nodules are pretty common. ...Read more
Wouldn't a 1.1x1c.M. Solid thyroid nodule already be growing? It couldn't have started at that size could it?
Thyroid nodule: Of course the nodule starts from small abnormal cells to large mass. Thyroid nodule is either not noticed or checked by patient. It can be incidental finding on us or ct for neck for other reasons. Important thing is to take care of it. See endocrinologist. Pls read http:// doctorrajput. Com thanks. ...Read more
Is a solid thyroid nodule considered hot or cold? I have a solid nodule but did not specify if it was hot or cold
My husband has been diagnosed with thyroid nodules which are solid and have micro calcifications. What does this mean?
Needs a biopsy: The most common form of thyroid cancer (papillary) has certain features on us that let us know if a nodule is worrisome. Microcalcifications is one of them. He should have a biopsy. Although thyroid ca is generally curable, it is a bit more serious in males than females and thus this should be followed up with a u/s guided - needle biopsy by an experienced physician. ...Read more
Depends: Hypoechoic, hypervascular, or calcifications on ultrasound need to be addressed particularly if the nodule is > 10mm. The solid component of a complex nodule can be benign or cancer. Typically a nodule greater than 10mm should be biopsied by ultrasound or smaller if there are calcifications or prior history of radiation or family hist. There is no ultrasound pattern that is diagnostic for cancer. ...Read more
What to do if I have 5 solid thyroid nodules more than a year ago, what happens if I left them untreated?
Determination of solid thyroid nodules' true nature requires a fine needle aspiration. Most biopsies are benign.

Dr said follow up u/s in one year for 7 mm hypoechoic thyroid nodule. Is this too long to wait? Or normal?
If they just found a 1.1 CM solid thyroid nodule how fast should I get it biopsy will this starts to grow very quickly?
Depends: You can get a fine needle aspiration, which is relatively non-invasive to obtain a diagnosis. Getting the advice of your clinician on this matter because he/she knows your clinical situation is recommended. ...Read more
Is there a greater chance of cancer in thyroid nodules in men? Mine is dominate, solid, homogeneous, and hypervastic measuring over 1cm on US.
Repeated thyroid nodule biopsy cold solid 3x7cm. How could he not get enough cells with such a large nodule? Also 2.4cm cold follicularGenetic testing
Possible: May be if nodule has fluid (Cyst) may not get cells (how many times was done? More than twice is unusual). If strongly suspicious for malignancy an image guided core needle biopsy, or even removal (surgery) Discuss with your doctor, plan of treatment Do not ignore if necessary take second opinion. ...Read more
